Little Big Words
Some of my favorite words in the Bible?
In, through, from, and by.
These words are so often over-looked by prideful eyes. As the Lord teaches us in every good purpose of His, He is sure to remind us how is it fulfilled. In Christ, through Christ Jesus, from God, and by the Holy Spirit. These prepositions are used in this regard over 152 times in the New Testament. One hundred and fifty two times, we are told how things get done.
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
